You like your pizza crust soft
I like to sink my teeth into crunchiness

You lay recyclables on the counter
I move them to the bin

You set our pots on the glass oventop
I put them in the cupboard

You leave doors and drawers open
Walking by, I close them

You like documentaries or animated films
I like drama

You are sick of politics
I can’t wait for the next chapter

You revise
I draft

Yet we allow the other freedom
in how we dress, what we eat,
what music to play,
when to sleep, where to read,
how little to exercise
how much TV to watch

And we’re on the same page
when it comes to how much we love our kids

and cats
